Sun City West Farmers Market

SunCitymarketbarWEBResponding to a growing demand in the Northwest Valley, PORA, Property Owners & Residents Association officials said they will begin hosting a farmers market. The first event will be Oct. 12, and the market will then be open the second Saturday of each month through April.

Located in the Property Owners and Residents Association parking lot, 13815 Camino del Sol, Sun City West, the market will be open from 9 a.m. To 1 p.m.

Farmers market operator M&M Events is coordinating the market along with similar markets around the Valley. Approximately 20 vendors are expected for the first event, selling locally grown pesticide-free produce, artisan breads and baked goods, eggs, locally raised grass fed beef, salsas and other sauces, pastas as well as other products. A knife sharpener will also participate.

“We’re very glad we could arrange this market at our facility. There is a need for this service in the area, and we’re happy to provide the space and help coordinate this for the community.” said PORA board president Bill Hansen.

PORA Executive Director Connie Scott added: “It has the potential to grow to more vendors and perhaps even additional dates if the demand grows.”
